After six days of occupation, Athens Law School is left with serious damages

The remaining 20 anarchists who were on a sit-in for the sixth consecutive day at the Athens Law School in downtown Athens, peacefully evacuated the premises yesterday after a no-arrest order was issued by the Alternate Minister of Public Order and Citizen Protection Giannis Panousis. The following day the University’s employees were surprise to realize that the damages amounted to hundreds of euros. Broken doors and windows, burned trash bins, tossed fire extinguishers, vandalized statues and a desecrated nearby church were some of the damages caused by the members of the anti-establishment movement.

It should be noted that on Friday, March 13, some 150 anarchist occupied the building demanding the release of November 17 convicted member Savvas Xeros from prison, the abolition of “Type-C” maximum security prison facilities, the repeal of anti-terrorism laws, as well as the immediate release of relatives of detainees involved with the Conspiracy of Fire Cells.
